Pisces in a Meadow

According to the Chinese zodiac, you are “Grass.”

In Western astrology, you are a Pisces.

Even when you just have a short conversation with someone, do you often find that you are somehow able to understand even their deepest emotions? You are especially able to feel the pain, struggles and worries of others very keenly. As a natural ability of yours, you may be able to empathize with the emotions of others. In a way, you may have a slight psychic quality. Or perhaps you are just very attentive and empathetic.

You seem to be able to sense the slightest change in a person’s facial expression or tone of voice – things that others would not normally be aware of.

Your ability to sense information that cannot be perceived normally is like a superpower to the average person.  You have the ability to directly see someone’s emotions and feelings. For better or worse, you simply “get it” when it comes to others.

You have always been kind and take pleasure in serving people, and you have a strong desire to live up to the expectations of those around you. Between this sense of devotion and responsibility, and the whirlwind of emotions that you take on from people, you may feel your heart being torn apart at times.

If you’ve been doing astrology for a while, then you probably already know that in Western astrology, you are classified as a Pisces (or to be more precise, your Sun sign is Pisces). Pisces are known to be healers, people pleasers, devoted, and responsible. They are very kind, but they are also often hurt because of this.

On the other hand, in the Oriental divination system (the Four Pillars of Destiny) you are represented by the Chinese character for “grass” (more accurately, “乙”). This represents the way in which you approach things, not head-on, but rather as if you were entangled in your surroundings. Think of a vine that grows while entangling itself in things nearby. You may not have the power to make an instantaneous breakthrough, but you have the tenacity to reach your goals slowly and steadily.

Western astrology and the Four Pillars of Destiny are two different types of divination. However, they are the same in that they both use your birthday to determine your destiny. The laws of the two worlds, East and West, each determine the fate that presides at the moment of your birth.

In other words, you, a human being with a complex destiny, are interpreted from the standpoint of both the East and the West. This does not mean that one of these interpretations is correct and the other incorrect. Rather, this means that both should be interpreted in a three-dimensional, complementary way.

Here we will examine your Pisces traits and your essence as a grass sign. When interpreted together, you can be described as a “Pisces in a Meadow”.

Picture a meadow full of tall grasses, with a school of fish swimming in the sea of plants.

It is a strange scene, somewhat like a surrealist painting.

The grass and plants grow in a complex intertwining pattern, and the school of fish is sometimes blocked in its path. Some fish break up into smaller schools, and others break away from the school, giving the impression that it is difficult to move forward.

However, from a bird’s eye view, the school seems to be making steady progress, moving in and out of groups. It’s a strangely beautiful and moving sight.

This image represents your destiny as a Pisces in a Meadow. Each time you take a step of progress forward, you may encounter troubles that prevent you from smoothly making your way.  However, as you tackle each of these difficulties, you will find yourself steadily growing.
